Actuarial science is an interdisciplinary field that uses mathematics, statistics, economics and business to analyze the financial costs of risk and uncertainty. As an actuary, you’ll be essential to the insurance industry and have some of the best job outlooks of any profession.

The coursework in the Actuarial Science emphasis prepares you for the first actuarial exam in probability (SOA exam P) and provides much of the background needed for the second exam in financial mathematics (SOA exam FM). Most students in this program are able to pass the first professional certification test before they graduate.
